The Northern Ohio Golf Association Charities & Foundation started Return To Golf with one mission – to restore physically challenged individuals to the greatest degree of independence possible by combining golf with rehabilitation-based fitness and conditioning.
Return to Golf is designed to promote fitness, social interaction, physical recreation and, most importantly, a greater appreciation for life through the great game of golf.
The weekly program is conducted at the Wharton Golf Center in North Olmsted, Ohio. This unique facility is located behind the ninth green at the North Olmsted Golf Club and houses a newly-created Fitness Center and Indoor Practice Facility. During each weekly visit, Return to Golf participants work one-on-one with PGA Professionals and fitness-oriented physical therapists to improve their quality of life and help them return to the game they love.
If your ability to play the game of golf has been hampered by a physical challenge or disability, Return To Golf can help you get back on the course and enjoy the wonderful experiences the game of golf can provide.

Return To Golf Brings the Course Indoors
For most golfers in northeast Ohio, the end of the golf season is traditionally marked by the arrival of winter. Golf courses are covered with a blanket of snow and the opportunities to swing the club must be put on hold until spring. Fortunately, Return To Golf participants now have the ability to tee it up all winter long thanks to the donation of an OptiShot Infrared Golf Simulator from Dancin' Dogg Golf. Watch Video >
